In the Fort Greene Historic District, directly across the street from the neighborhood’s eponymous park, this two-bedroom co-op is quite compact but priced accordingly. Located on the parlor floor of a five-unit Neo-Grec brownstone, it’s been nicely renovated with original details despite its size.
In the way of period notes, there are parquet floors with walnut inlay throughout and crown moldings in the living and bedrooms, the former of which also has a decorative marble mantel and dark wood moldings. Storage has been incorporated into the main area, with floor-to-ceiling shelving built into a structural column and what appears to be overhead storage behind shutter-like cabinets above the kitchen.
The well-designed kitchen is awkwardly placed in the corner of the main living space, but it is attractive nonetheless. There’s plenty of counter and cabinet space, along with a Bosch dishwasher and small Viking stove.
Windows in the living room, which has 11-foot ceilings, display a view of the park.
Both bedrooms are in the rear; the master has two closets and garden-facing windows, and the second bedroom, which has no closet, has garden access through sliding glass doors. (Note: Both bedrooms have window bars.)
The all-white bathroom has a pedestal sink, hex tile floors and subway tile on the walls and front of the tub. A foyer-like space off the entrance sports a large closet and connects the living room and kitchen to the back bedrooms and bath.
On a historic stretch of Italianate and Neo-Grec townhouses, the home is a quick 4.5-block walk from the Fulton Street G station, where the quaint, triangular slice of BAM Park suddenly reopened to the public this weekend.
Listed by Corcoran’s Heather McMaster, Emily Shepodd and Ariane Dembs, the unit carries monthly maintenance of $750 and a price tag of $995,000. Worth a look?
